Better than the first one now that they've clearly found their voice. RyanReynolds was fantastic as was Domino. Apparently Josh Brolin can't stop himself from playing awesome comic book characters. The gags are hilarious and the final montage is especially tasty. Plus, it actually managed to have some heart.

This movie was unstoppable for action, character interactions you hadn’t experienced yet, and THANOS!! What fan boy/girl in our right mind ever thought we would get to see Thanos, let alone one played so freaking well by Josh Brolin. (0 more)
This movie could’ve been 5 hours long and I would’ve watched every second. That’s not a downside, you say? You’re right! I wanted more and due to the awesomeness of this flick I can’t wait for the next one. (0 more)
Beyond great! A Marvel Grandslam!

Ryan Reynolds is even more assured in the role he was born to play. (3 more)
The jokes are relentless and full of the pop culture references and meta four wall breaks you'd expect from Deadpool.
Josh Brolin is great as Cable. Stoic and monosyllabic without being boring.
Zazie Beetz is brilliant as Domino. The portrayal of her Luck superpower is great and her back and forth with Deadpool matches the comics pretty well.
Vanessa is under served a little. As she was in the first film. (1 more)
You could argue some of the structure is too similar to the first film. Cab rides to battles etc.
Solid sequel full of meta laughs and some surprising emotional depth

Ewan McGregor's 'american' accent. (0 more)
Don't diddle dead things!
Me and the wife were watching 'the possession of Hannah Grace' and it reminded me of this 90s gem. Ewan McGregor takes a job as a night watchman at a morgue to pay for law school and it's obviously kinda freaky but then he begins to realise he's being implicated for a series of murders. Great psychological build ups and scares and great performances from josh brolin and Nick Nolte. The only real let down is Ewan McGregor and his terrible American accent which is so bad it's almost distracting. Most definitely worth a watch.

I may have liked Sicario 2 more than the original. I was perfectly fine with Emily Blunt not being included, because her character wouldn't have really fit in with the story.
I think savage is the perfect word to describe this film. The release was probably not the best timing, but it does seem to accurately portray the coyotes.
Josh Brolin is on a roll this year, and I don't mind that this is his third film released in the span of a few months. Del Toro was excellent, yet again. Some of the plot dragged a bit at the end, but I was completely engaged the whole time.
I was glad that the last scene was so tension-filled, yet again, like in the last film. I won't say anything else about it, since it'd be a semi-spoiler.

A recent re-watch of Jonah Hex went something like this:

- a lot of stuff happened before that title card that it's already incoherent
- wait, Michael Fassbender is in this?
- I can't see what's happening
- ah sweet, it's the dude from Mastodon.
- wait, Will Arnett is in this?
- Megan Fox really drew the short straw on a lot of her movie projects
- is that Michael Shannon!?
- ah sweet, it's the dude from John Wick.
- wait, Jeffrey Dean Morgan is in this!?
- once again, couldn't see what the fuck was happening because of the piss poor lighting, but Jonah Hex is nearly dead again, apparently.
- Ah cool, here's a mid-runtime action heavy sequence, still can't tell what's happening.
- wait....nope, it's over.

Christ, this movie is a blurry mess that's impressively hard to follow considering its short runtime. I love the Jonah Hex comics, I tend to enjoy Josh Brolin and John Malkovich, how is this such a trainwreck?

That Mastodon soundtrack is badass though.

Not quite as good as the original
Before watching Sicario 2, I really wanted to try and watch the original movie again, but never got a chance. I remember it being brutal and intense, with outstanding performances from Emily Blunt and Benicio Del Toro. I remember it gripping me from beginning to end. But, strangely, I couldn't remember very much about it at all other than basic plot details. I know I would recommend it in a heartbeat though, so I was excited for what the sequel would bring.

In Sicario: Day of the Solado (or just Sicario 2: Soldado here in the UK...), the brutal intensity is introduced right from the start. A suicide bomber blows himself up at the U.S. - Mexican border. Then, in a Kansas supermarket, terrorists enter and detonate two bombs, followed by a third which is detonated while a woman and child plead to be set free. It's shocking, upsetting, and sticks with you uncomfortably for a while, serving as a push to get you behind federal agent Matt Graver (Josh Brolin) as he's brought in to start a war between the Mexican drug cartels. The plan has something to do with securing the border from terrorists, which kind of doesn't make much sense, but after the events in the opening scenes, you just want somebody to get out there and kick some ass. And with the promise that he's allowed to play things "dirty", you know that Josh Brolin is more than capable. He locates and recruits Alejandro (Benicio Del Toro) to help him out, with the promise of getting revenge against the family responsible for the death of his own family. They kidnap the daughter of a top gang boss, and attempt to blame it on a rival gang. But things don't go according to plan.

Like the original, there are plenty of intense, well executed scenes, but this just didn't grip me in the same way as the first movie did. Benicio Del Toro is just brilliant, but the lack of Emily Blunt was noticeable. Still a very enjoyable movie though.
